Buy Eco Friendly Ganpati

Source: E-Coexist

I had mentioned this last year [2009] too about Eco Friendly Ganpati, and here want to spread this message once again,

Its about Eco Friendly Ganpati, the festival brings lots of happiness to peoples heart and home, but what about the environment ?

No one thinks about the environment even after told again and again to not to pollute the environment,

Because of Ganpati Immersion our water is getting polluted alot, here you get to see the condition of water,

and here is what happens to the Fishes because of the chemical they use in making the idol

Why do you want to drink such water, even though it gets purified and comes to you, but look what you do to it,

Now to stop this, we are the one who can help it, we those who get Ganpati at home, because there are n-number of small Ganpati’s being immersed  everyyear, and we can reduce the polution by buying eco friendly Ganpati and immersing those at the artificial ponds.

To check the idols , just visit the website and you will get to see them. you need to go and book the idol at the place near you.. from the list given above… [we need to book the idol around 2 months in advance]

They make these idols using Clay, they colour the idol with natural colours like  Haldi, Kumkum and Geru

The best part about these idols is that you can immerse the idol at home in a bucket full of water and once its melted, you can just pour the water and clay into your garden or under a tree.

For those who must be wondering if Eco Friendly is costly, then its a big NO to this question, these idols are not so costly, it must be around 100 to 200 Rs more then the plaster idols.

Here is the direct link to the idols : Eco Friendly Ganpati Idol

You can follow them on Facebook also here : E-Coexits on Facebook

To spread the awareness Nirmitee Gallery somewhere in Mumbai had arranged exhibition named Vakratund Mela in 2009, they displayed Eco Friendly Ganpati, and informed the people visiting the mela the importance of being Eco Friendly,

So Friends, lets help our Environment, Buy Eco friendly Ganapati, immerse them at home in bucket or the artificial Ponds near your Home…

It was earlier that we couldnt locate from where to buy an Eco Friendly Idol, but now when it has become so easy that we can Buy these Idols so easily near by our house, THEN WHY NOT ?

If we take one step ahead, others will surly join us.. lets move towards Green and Safe Mumbai.
